Book Description

A Books24x7's TOP 10 title for 4 consecutive years!

Java is an easy language to learn. However, you need to master more than the language syntax to be a professional Java programmer. For one, object-oriented programming (OOP) skill is key to developing robust and effective Java applications. In addition, knowing how to use the vast collection of libraries makes development more rapid.

This book introduces you to important programming concepts and teaches how to use the Java core libraries. It is a guide to building real-world applications, both desktop and Web-based. The coverage is the most comprehensive you can find in a beginner’s book. Here are some of the topics in this book:

- Java language syntax
- Object-oriented programming
- The Collections Framework
- Working with numbers and dates
- Error handling
- Input Output
- Generics
- Annotations
- Swing
- Database access
- Internationalization
- Networking
- Applets
- Multithreading and the Concurrency Utilities
- Servlet and JavaServer Pages
- API documentation
- Security
- Application deployment

This book covers Java SE 7 and was written with clarity and readability in mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Answer to Learning Java 13 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have tried several books and on-line tutorials in an effort to come to grips with Java programming. I have found them often too superficial or too obscure. The Java 7 BT3 strikes just the right balance and although I am less than 20% through the book it has already cleared several brick walls I had come up against in other books. In particular the good cross referencing helps with the understanding of interdependent concepts.

I am already familiar with OOP having used Delphi 6 in the Borland release. The structure is very similar although the words used for similar concepts are different from Javaabd it does lack the platform independence of Java. What a pity Embarcadero did not keep up the personal version of Delphi when they took it over from Borland.

I look forward to reading the remaining 80% of the book and will try to add to this review when I have done so.

It gives a good description of everything for Java 7, but there are quite a few mistakes in it. It certainly wasn't proof-read, especially as some of the code samples are just plain wrong !

5.0 out of 5 stars Also a Good Refresher for re-entry into Java. 27 Oct. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
If you are a new user of Java or, if you are like me and wish to re-engage as a Java developer after many years away from SW development, Java 7: A Beginners Tutorial is just the book you need. The best feature of this book is the how the author, Budi Kurniawan, introduces the basic topics a Java developer must master before moving on to other texts dedicated to the individual advanced Java topics.

This book introduces the Java Language and its essential application libraries in a well structured sequence, advancing from simple to complex topics and coding examples. As you work your way through the early chapters, as the text and coding examples teach you the basic Java features, the author provides glimpses of critical advanced features required to make each coding example a realistic application. Subsequent chapters cover each of these advanced Java feature in greater detail.

To take full advantage of the text, you should follow the instructions provided in the book's Introduction to download the free soft copies of the examples, the free Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and your selected Integrated Development Environment (IDE). That way you can load, execute, and tweak each example as you work your way through the Java experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars not really for begginers! 2 July 2012
By Tom - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book contains only theoretical info and no exercises or questions at all! it jumps from one topic to another without any examples that helps connect the dots.
If you are new to Object Oriented Programming there is no chance you'll start programming java through this book alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ed's review of Budi's Java 7 5 Oct. 2012

Java 7: A Beginner's Tutorial (A Tutorial series)
I am a qualified expert to review this book because the cover says "A Beginners Tutorial" and I am a beginner. I wanted to learn Java so I wanted to find an up to date Java 7 book. There are only a few choices of Java 7 books and most of them are not for beginners. None the less I reviewed the table of contents of those available and chose Budi Kurniawan's book as the most complete and most up to date. I have carefully read all 691 pages of text and code and underlined material that I may need to read again or come back to for reference.
This book is an excellent teacher and is very complete. It provides more material than is necessary for a beginner; however the more advanced material is so marked and can be skipped initially.
Contrary to many books and on line advisers I have been using Dr Java as my IDE instead of Net Beans or Eclipse because it does not require you to make package files, jar files or Project files. The capabilities of Net Beans and Eclipse are daunting for the beginner to learn and make use of. With Dr Java you can concentrate on writing and adjusting the basic Java language code.
If you are a beginner or perhaps an intermediate level Java programmer, I strongly recommend this book if you want to learn the latest, Java 7.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for Java 7 10 July 2012
By PetRaf - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you want to learn Java just to gain some extra credits on your college studies or just for fun, then this is not the book for you. But, if you are a serious programmer that wants to MASTER Java 7, then this is your book. I was new to Java and new to OOP when I bought this book, so that I had to read 1 book (A classroom in a book, John Smiley) before getting to this one to learn the very basics of Java, but after that, I was able to fallow all of the code examples. Some of them could confuse you because he just write the piece of code he is talking about and not a hole program to make it work, it would take to much time and space, but if you know the basics of Java, there's not a problem to make them work. Additionally, this book covers a lot of new topics, which I think is the point (Java 7) and I want to learn all that's new about!! So this book really puts you up to date in Java and also teaches you a lot of things you won't find on basic books.
